My latest furniture project

I received this buffet for free from a nice lady.  It didn't have any hardware.  I ran into all kinds of problems when I was working on this. The middle top drawer had broken off at the top. Two of the legs broke off while I was dragging it into the house. I couldn't find the right size hardware. But finally it all came together.
I use Rustoleum Chalked Paint in Serenity for the bottom portion and used a red, I think called Crimson chalk paint I bought at Walmart for the top.
I distressed with my sander and I used white and dark wax to finish it.
It's going into my craft room for storage!
Presently working on an old dresser from the 1930's.  It is in horrible shape, lets see if I can make it pretty again.

Are you interested in learning to use chalk paint?  Let me know I would be glad to give you some pointers. Michelle
